October 3, 2015 World Cardmaking Day

birthday miss you wedding People give each other cards to celebrate birthdays, weddings, achievements and more, as well as to commiserate or support. But how much does your sentiment mean, if it’s simply bought from a retail chain with little thought? Take some time this Card Making Day and create something heartfelt from scratch, and show the recipient that you’ve really thought about them.

CALLING KNITTING UTAH FANS

UTAH Cowl                                                                                 Calling all knitting Uof U fans

I’ve got a fun knitted cowl for you!

Knit a cowl of the UofU football season showing the results of each game. Knit a round of Red for each point the U scores, and knit a round of Black for each point the opponent scores. For example: The first game was Utah vs Michigan. The Utes scored 3 points, and then Michigan scored 3 points. So knit three rounds in Red, then 3 rounds in Black. Then the Utes scored a touchdown with the extra point (7), and then scored another touchdown with the extra point. So knit 14 rows of Red. Michigan scored a touchdown and extra point, knit 7 rounds in Black. The Utes scored a touchdown and extra point, knit 7 rounds in Red. Then the final touchdown was scored by Michigan with an extra point. Knit 7 rounds in Black. That was the end of the game. Now if you want you can knit a few rounds of white signifying the end of the game. Next game you knit the points as they happen either with the Red or Black. Here’s the scoring for the first four games. I’m behind as usual but trying to get caught up. And… did you see the UTAH Oregon game? I’m still trying to recover from that AWESOME game. Have fun and GOOO UTES!
